Emphasizing real music and music-making, The Musician’s Guide to Theory and Analysis gives students the hands-on tools they need to learn how music works.
Theoretically current and pedagogically innovative, the Musician’s Guide series uses the phrase model approach to show students how music works in context. With a focus on real music literature that students know and play, it shows how music theory relates directly to practice and performance. The Musician’s Guide to Theory and Analysis includes all topics essential to first- and second-year theory for music majors, from fundamentals to post-tonal theory and analysis.

This text uses the Phrase Model technique of explaining how tonal music is structured. It is as accurate as Aldwell & Schachter's Harmony and Voice-Leading but it is much more undergraduate-friendly in its language. Please consider this text instead of Benward (terrible, inaccurate) or Kostka/Payne (lacking, misleading). Don't just use the text you had when you were an undergraduate; think for yourself and examine this book.
